Are you volunteering to make all the timely speed limit parameter changes to all segments across the world? Else, how would this database stay up-to-date? We already have whole towns that are still crap basemap road data, let alone lacking speed limit data.
In regards to volunteering, I assume you were being sarcastic. Or are you really saying that if I don't volunteer then the database would not stay up to date? Are you a volunteer for Waze? Is there a job opening? In any case, the data does exist in a form that is updated often enough. It was compiled through some kind of human effort and I suspect people were paid for their efforts. This data is being used to good effect by your competitors on behalf of their happy customers. Perhaps more to the point, I was arguing philosophy, while you are arguing logistics. So if you first agree to the idea, questions of execution follow. In that regard, I would remind you that if you argue for your limitations, then sure enough, they are yours.
